Best Brother and Sister Team Bringing National Attention to Austin: Liz Lambert and Lou Lambert

Best Brother and Sister Team Bringing National Attention to Austin: Liz Lambert and Lou Lambert

Chef/restaurateur Lou Lambert's culinary style has made a name for him across Texas and is gaining national press for his efforts. Sister Liz Lambert, attorney-turned-hotelier, is the proprietor of Hotel San José, the SoCo bastion of chic, and has begun a small empire, often working with brother Lou. Their separate visions of true Texas style with a modern patina seems to enchant the public, and all their efforts win "Best of Austin" awards. They've been lauded in The New York Times, Elle Decor, and Food & Wine, among many other publications, and the menu of Liz's new El Cosmico Hotel in Marfa will be designed by Lou. Continued success to them both; we're all better for it.

Liz Lambert, Hotel San José, 1316 S. Congress, 512/852-2360,
